So, on our return from Castara I thought I'd post an update which may help anyone else who is considering booking. Our flights - we flew Thomas Cook from Manchester - fantastic value and really good flights, look to upgrade if you can afford the extra as it makes a big difference.
We stayed with Yvonne & Chris at Carpe Diem, fantastic apartments with an amazing view. Chilled out from the moment we arrived - our lovely hosts had pre-ordered our pizza for us at the Boathouse on the beach. Everywhere we went in Castara we were made welcome as friends and we are already looking to return.
Just a warning, despite Chris & Yvonne's massive efforts the First Citizens cashpoint in Castara is a bit hit and miss. Just find a 'blue' cashpoint (Republic Bank) on your way down from the airport and draw out your money there. There are a couple of places that accept cards, but not many. Sharon at the Boathouse will let you pay in £.
Lovely, lovely, holiday - 32 degrees, cold beer and a great welcome what more could you ask for?
